A small winery making great wines, located at Villanueva de Campeán, some 30 km to the south of Zamora, in the midst of ‘Tierra del Vino’ (Land of the Wine) country.
The predominant variety used is Tinta de Toro, also known as Tempranillo. With this local indigenous variety they combine Prieto Picudo and Mencía, originating from vineyards that are fairly old and low-yielding in Bierzo and León.
The winery has more than 30 parcels of old vineyards, some boasting grapevines over 100 years old.
The management of technical operations and production comes under the responsibility of winemaker Amy Hopkins from New Zealand, an expert when it comes to handling the winery’s 3 varieties, who has spent a number of years working in the region and with good results.
Bodegas Tritón belongs to Gil Family, a winery group that shares media-marketing activities and promotional campaigns with other wineries, and which also includes Bodegas Atalaya, Bodegas Ateca, Bodegas El Nido, Bodegas y Viñedos Shaya, Cellers Can Blau, Orowines, Lagar Da Condesa and Bodegas Juan Gil.
